I recently asked about UFW behind a Firewall & I think I kind of meant for it to be ongoing/discussion based as there is no "correct answer" IMO. Should I just let users answer/upvote the answer they think is best? Should I select an answer I like best?

    No. If they are, they are closed.

If you have a question for which there can be no single right — or at least, judged to be best — answer, it's not a good fit for Stack Exchange in the first place.

That doesn't mean it's bad — it's just not what we're here for. See the site help for more, under What types of questions should I avoid asking?

  • this is the right answer.

  • Would you say that the question i linked falls under that category? Dec 18, 2015 at 6:04
  • I originally asked it in Meta, because it felt off for the main site, but I now understand meta is for asking questions about the site, like this one. (its a learning curve) Dec 18, 2015 at 6:05
